In addition to the launch of the Vevo app on the Apple TV this morning, a few other notable apps have appeared on the device as well, including two Disney channels. The Disney Channel, Disney XD, The Weather Channel, and the Smithsonian Channel have all arrived on the Apple TV. The Smithsonian Channel and The Weather Channel both give you access to on demand conent. The Weather Channel also allows you to enter your location to see your local forecast.
The Disney Channel and Disney XD allow you to watch live Disney programming. However, you will need to sign in through your cable provider. At launch in the United States, the channels are supported by AT&T U-verse, Charter, Comcast XFINITY, Cox, Midcontinent Communications, Optimum, and Verizon FiOS. More providers are sure to be added later on as deals are struck.
The addition of Disney channels to the Apple TV is yet another push that Apple is making to get live content on their set-top box. Back in June, live ESPN and SkyNews came to the device, and there continue to be rumors around a possible deal with Time Warner Cable to get live content on the Apple TV.
Note that access to this content is dependent on your region. Did you get the new channels? If so, how did they work for you? Either way, what other channels do you want to see?
